Fullan & Hargreaves: Bringing the Profession Back In
This is a thought provoking, passionate article – great to launch into the holiday break. Check this out!
Fullan, M. & Hargreaves, A. (2016). Bringing the profession back in: Call to action. Oxford, OH: Learning Forward.
From page 2 : “The essence of our argument is that PLD, carefully defined, is at the heart of an effective and continuously growing teaching profession and, in turn, the best visions and versions of it are rooted firmly in a system culture of collaborative professionalism that cultivates individual and collective efficacy. Becoming a teacher is about moral purpose. It is about teachers’ commitment to an agenda focused on equity and making a positive difference to children’s lives. Enhancing the role of teachers individually and collectively in learning to lead the development of practice must be deeply rooted in a learning culture.”
